The Golden State Warriors have signed Nick Young to a one-year, $5.2 million deal, according to a report from ESPN.

Young spent the last four seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, averaging 13.1 points per game while shooting 40.5 percent from the field and 37.7 percent beyond the arc.
The Warriors don’t need it, but Young will provide even more scoring power off Golden State’s bench. The 11-year veteran is one of the best isolation scorers in the game, as he can get off his shot anytime he wants.
Young figures to get many wide open looks within the flow of the Warriors’ offense. Golden State, to the chagrin of the rest of the league, now has even more death lineups they can use.
